We absolutely LOVE this place. Our table was quiet and perfect! The food was outstanding! They surprised us with a special desert and two glasses of champagne for my Birthday. No loud singing, just a quiet, personal presentation. Perfect. And very much appreciated. The service was excellent! Thank you for a delightful evening!

Truly enjoyed our experience. The cost is worth every penny. From the moment we walked in we were cared for and assisted with warmth and kindness. We were on the early side of dinner time so the dining areas were very quiet but by the time we left all was full. The food was beautifully presented and the staff knowledgeable. Did not feel rushed in any choice or enjoying any part of our meal. We hope to return again soon!

Our favorite server Max always provides outstanding attention to make sure our dining experience is fantastic. I had the veal chop special with was perfect. My wife ordered the swordfish special which unfortunately was a bit dry. Max handled it for us and then we enjoyed a great dessert. We will definitely be back.

Dinner was superb! Max and his assistant were terrific! We had the foie gras, duck and soufflé and the lobster bisque, Dover sole and desert crepe. All were cooked to perfection and the presentations were 5 star. This was our first dinner at Bouchard’s and we are already arranging for our next.

I love this restaurant. It maintains a subtle dignity that other restaurants lack. Classic yet innovative french cuisine. The staff and service is always excellent. I've gone here every Valentines Day for 10 years now, and I don't see an end coming soon.

Incredible food and such a treat. Went here with a group of six and just had a blast. Avoid the front tables near the kitchen, is my only advice. They will move you if you ask nicely; provided other tables are open.

Dining at Bouchard's was a fabulous experience. It had been awhile since my last visit and it did not disappoint. The ambiance for Valentine's day was subtle but elegant. The hostess pleasantly greeted us and we were brought to our table immediately. Our waiter was personable, helpful and efficient. The food was beautifully presented and delicious. I had Coquille St Jacques and my husband had Beef Wellington. We finished with a delicious but light Grand Marnier souffle. A 10 out of 10 evening. Highly recommend Bouchard's.

We live in the area and cannot believe we’ve never had dinner at Bouchard‘s. It was our first time and it certainly won’t be our last! It was a beautiful atmosphere and the food was excellent. Every single dish we had was awesome- our plates were clean. The service was tremendous especially our waiter Jed.

The food, service was all outstanding. I had the baked stuffed lobster, my boyfriend had the veal, all recommended by the Captain. For appetizers, we had the lobster bisque which was light and creamy and the lobster and asparagus in a puff pastry. We had the carpaccio as well for a cold appetizer. We ended the meal with a perfect soufflé.
